LGB/aster had vertical motors (short shaft 62201)) and the issue I saw was the force fitted gear on the end of the motor shaft would eventually spin on the shaft.
On the other hand, the Mikado motor is a much larger one than the standard short/long shaft LGB uses in many engines.

Ist generation Mikado had a DC only board. Next generation had a board for adding the LGB decoder. If factory built with a decoder then there would be a silver sticker with either MTS or MZS on the sticker.
